On June 26, delegations representing the United States and Sierra Leone initialed the text of a U.S.-Sierra Leone Open Skies Agreement. The Agreement, which will be applied on the basis of comity and reciprocity pending entry into force, will liberalize our bilateral aviation relationship.
This agreement strengthens and expands our trade and tourism links with Sierra Leone, and will benefit American and Sierra Leonean businesses and travelers. It will expand air service and encourage vigorous price competition by airlines, while safeguarding aviation safety and security.
